This is less depressing than I expected.
Not wisdom but any excuse to post this.
Keep wasting time, /a/.
He explained anime in one sentence
dude no fun allowed I love that meme
Is this some kind of inside joke with translators? Does japanese have a word a different word for death of soul and death of body or something? I see it used a lot, or the reverse of "He's the type of guy who wouldn't die even if he was killed". Also, its 2015 and people are still taking the Shirou quote out of context.
In context, the quote always makes sense, but it's always a metaphor that only works based on how the show is telling it.
Shirou should've died when killed because he kept getting Avalon'd, and autumn dude was a literal retard who barely understood the concepts of life and death, not getting how there aren't second chances or undoing a murder.
But it's always funny out of context because it's basic shit played as serious.
Kenji is an inspiration for all mankind
I think the hardest part of listening to stories is that it will never be reality. And you will never be the hero. Never have that position where you learn the meaning of whatever it is you have been called to do. It's an escape, but no matter how many times you take it, you will eventually need to return to dullness of everyday life.
In English, the verb 'to kill' implies completion of the act of killing someone. The Japanese verb 'to kill' only means the action of killing someone.
It's like the difference between kicking a ball and swinging your foot.
A literal translation would be something weird like "People die if you take the actions to kill them". The actual meaning in most contexts is more like "Violence leads to death" or in the negative case "You couldn't kill him even if you tried"
You're the hero of your own story, dude. But keep in mind the hero doesn't always get the best life - lots of times it's just tragedy. Heck, even look at Dragonball Z, wouldn't you rather be Krillin and marry a genuinely awesome girl instead of being Goku or Vegeta? Who's life is genuinely better?
It's true that I control my story. But am I the hero, the center of the stage? Or am I an extra on the side? Both have entirely different lives, but both are pieces to a larger story. I guess you might be right on many accounts. Perspective is a terrifying thing.
I do like your contrast to Goku, and Krillin as well. They're good people to be, or to aspire to be. I suppose what I like about these heroes is they drastically affect the story with their choices, and their existence is still important. If one disappears, then the entire story changes.
I suppose the idea is that they are connected to the big picture, while we bystanders don't really change much. Some exist only to die.
It's an interesting thought experiment.
And I am sorry for my wall of text. I may have gotten carried away.
But I just make an ass out of myself when I talk
Kaiji and LOGH seems pretty /pol/ to me
LoGH is too unbiased for /pol/.
It's a miracle any non-white people managed to survive Rudolf's purging at all. That's why you only see white people in the empire.
Mashengo is a god damn 31st century unicorn.
To be fair, there were only about 4 defined black people in all of space, with everybody else being russian, german, american, or generally Caucasian.
And as one of those few black people of space, Louis Mashengo was a fucking champion.
Have you considered that what you call libtard propaganda is what we otherwise refer to as morality, justice and righteousness, and conservative values are actually a thin veneer over what we call evil?
If you're offended maybe your values are all fucked up?
God bless Bittenfeld. It was great that he got to shine near the end of the series when plotarmor started to wear thin.
The point of Rudolf was that he was basically Adolf, and the Nazi's treated blacks/africans terribly too. so you'd assume that they'd have been purged as well.
You are truly a moron. There isn't enough text in the world to describe the paradox of your beliefs and their results in reality.
I'm willing to go out on a limb and bet you are one of those people that pretends that they were being retarded after posting stupid shit like this.
The Ottoman Empire was very advanced for its time and bore many similarities to national socialism which Hitler liked. Muslims may have been darker, but the muslims Hitler liked enough to have taken photos with wouldn't have been the dark ones from africa, more like just the tanned-like-a-mediterranean/greek type of fellow which the Germans would tolerate and respect as long as they stuck to their own culture.
Well giving money and food to people who didn't earn it sure is leftist. Many of these anime wisdom are leftist propaganda but it's disguised behind entertainment. It's no more different than movies or video games or television.
Nazi's did have blacks in their army and I'm sure Hitler had no problem with blacks.
Just Google Jessie Owens. Guess who was the only guy to congratulate him?
I learned a lot from the KKK
An ideal government seeks to improve its citizenry, and to make them want to improve themselves. To this end, making sure necessities like food and housing are available, as well as education, isn't liberal or conservative; it's common sense and will nearly always result in the betterment of the nation as a whole.
The current problem for the government, at least in America, is that we struggle to efficiently provide these things and a lot of the resources gets stagnated in the process.
[Hitler] "was highly annoyed by the series of triumphs by the marvelous colored American runner, Jesse Owens. People whose antecedents came from the jungle were primitive, Hitler said with a shrug; their physiques were stronger than those of civilized whites and hence should be excluded from future games."
I know I gonna get shit for this and get called a newfag or whatever but is this show worth it? I've been on /a/ for a while but never touched it ,mostly because of the character designs,(I know it's a petty reason) but some people don't watch a show for hiraiface and this one seems really off putting for me.
Although from bits and pieces I've seen on /a/ he seems to be trying to get out of a debt of some sort?
Nazi's did have blacks in their army and I'm sure Hitler had no problem with blacks.
I didn't want to get involved, but this so pathetically stupid I can't help it.
No, German blacks did not join the Nazi Party.
Assuming everyone in Germany was a Nazi just because they were the party in power is like assuming everyone in America is a Democrat because Obama is in office.
Many did join the the Wehrmacht to avoid the occasional sweep of forced sterilization blacks got for being Untermensch in Hitler's Reich.
>we struggle to efficiently provide these things and a lot of the resources gets stagnated in the process.
It doesn't help that we have far too many imbeciles like our /pol/tard friend here who directly interfere to make it harder to not only provide those services, but to fix the inefficient system that's providing them.
Well, he was a guest staying in the Olympic athletes village with Aryan fangirls lusting after his speedy niggerdick.
Would probably help that Germany was a very nice country in 1936.
The Nazi's also used blacks to salvage debris from chemical laden rivers in france or some shit, made most of the black workers blind and they got lead poisoning and died, those that refused to swim in the toxic water were shot
You told me to google it, I was under the impression Hitler didn't shake his hand but it seems like he did and the media didn't cover it.
Still, he did think of blacks as inferior beings
The divided congress, many of whom (at least in the house) are newer members following more specific ideologies and are more beholden to their constituencies then their more senior counterparts, is really fucking things up.
I have no idea how long it will take to start undoing the mess they've caused, or even to how long it will take to even start the process.
He was referring to how he didn't expect Hitler to come shake his hand, but he was really disappointed that Roosevelt didn't invite him to the White House with the rest of the Olympic athletes afterwards.
It didn't hurt him to be snubbed by the known racist and Aryan supremacist. It did hurt to be snubbed by his own president.
I blame Nixon for getting the religious retards involved and they've fucked up the entire Republican Party now.
Politics is a game of give and take. Compromise.
These religious fucknuggets think they have God on their side and refuse to budge and inch, even if it literally shuts down the government.
And their constituents are told to love them for it by their noise machine. And any Republican who understands how(and simply THAT) government is supposed to work are vilified as RINOs. Republicans in Name Only. While the only reason the Tea-Tards are even part of the GOP is to use that shiny little (R) after their name. They are literally the only RINOs in the room.
Fuck they piss me off.
The tea party is a rather disturbing movement. I take solace though in the fact that most of human history has progressed in the manner of first a movement, then a counter movement as push back against the first. This ironically doesn't result in stagnation but rather progress.
Eventually the push back against the tea party will form a movement, hopefully in the Republican Party itself, to retake the party back from extremism. How long it is till that point i have no clue though.
The problem is that that bleeds votes off the party they want and will just make it easier for "the others" to win.
So if the Tea Party were to split off, it would take a lot of votes away from moderate Republican candidates and open up a great deal of opportunities for the Democrats to grow and expand.
Of course, the Democrats are being run into the ground by that idiot cunt of a Party Chair they have and her abandonment of the 50-State Policy has cost that party literally hundreds of seats in Congress and state and local legislatures because she assumed they weren't worth fighting for.
It doesn't seem to be going to happen this election cycle.
I'm sure that some of them were affected, but most of them were permanently helf in serfdom. Once the Alliance was founded and news of it spread throughout the Empire in secret, virtually all minorities (i.e., anyone who was neither white nor had a German surname) fled to the Alliance.
Food and housing are already provided by the government. Post-secondary education is so overpriced due to subsidies removing these institutions from the free market. Trying to meddle in the economy further only makes things worse. If you don't believe me, look at our cities that have been dominated by Democrats for decades: Chicago, Detroit, L.A., Baltimore, etc.
It's there that we see the greatest socioeconomic disparities
It is a counter movement, but the reason I say it's disturbing is because it's a counter movement to something that isn't really a movement. A counter movement without an origin or actual reason.
It's a counter movement to this idea that religion, and the "traditional American Lifestyle" are under attack.
Now, anyone with reason can find that conservatism is stronger in America than liberalism and that disparity hasn't really changed much at all for decades at least.
They would also be able to figure out that religion, more specifically Christianity, is alive and well in America still, it just doesn't have the stranglehold on American spirituality as it did before.
And finally, their belief in a "traditional" American lifestyle is nothing more than mistaking a forced situation for tradition. Women weren't in the workforce before because they wouldn't have been hired. Interracial marriage was illegal, and so was same sex marriage. Their "tradition" is just a part of laws reflecting prior prejudices in the nation, not an actual cultural tradition.
The Tea Party is just a counter movement against perceived threats to a group that used to have near complete control in America.
is /pol/ serious or is it some really elaborate satire? Do they really see themselves as some sort of band of freedom fighters?
YES BEST SHOW in that season.
Loved that scene when old man with leaf dressed as Kohina and comforted dogs loneliness.
Weird how so many of these are from Bittenfeld, not really the guy you'd peg as poignant.
Can someone post the NHK image of not wanting to live, but it being too much of a bother to die? I don't seem to have it on this computer.
It's from the episode where Oberstein lets the nobles nuke a planet, right before they get nuked.
Kumagawa spoke many great words of wisdom for a loser.
I wish I had the balls to go out into dark alleys and punch degenerate druggie fucks into submission while yelling, "YOU'RE NOT LIVING YOUR LIFE CORRECTLY!"
Maybe that would give them a wake-up call and go into rehab. Or they might just think that I'm autistic and do nothing about it.
I remember that doujin. Still fap to it every now and then.
anon the point here is that, the villain seek for joy in evil by doing bad deeds. Then the reverse for the hero is equivalent, if the hero enjoy his path in righteousness then he too, believe good is liberating.
Second of all, the villain also accomplish nothing because the hero is always there to undo his part.
The hero suffers to get his enjoyment though, while the villain is inherently taking the path of least resistance. The hero may feel he's doing the right thing, but he is totally shackled to the will and whims of the villain, as a hero is a reactionary entity that can't act until the villain has made a move.
>King Torture is Garou
Not all heroes are reactionary to the antagonist's actions. Take the heroes of old such as Gilgamesh. They are entirely self-driven, and every action they take is done out of their own desire to accomplish something great. Granted, Gilgamesh is a complete asshole who does a fuck-ton of dickish things such as slaying the Bull of the Heavens, murdering Umbaba to chop down holy trees to make a sick-ass gate for his city, making an important goddess look like a dumb bitch, etc. However, the actions in of themselves do not define the hero but the extent of their greatness. A hero who goes to impossible ends to take down a powerful villain threatening the peace of the world is a hero because of what he undergoes, not because of his motives. A hero's actions may harm others and may ultimately be selfish in motive, but so long as the action is great and awe-inspiring, they are a hero.
At least that's how heroism used to work. You could be a massive faggot and still be called a hero just because of how fucking big of a dick you had from fucking the mother of gorgons after slaying a 90-headed hydra or some shit.
His wife took the throne, but not before he specifically stated that his son was not to be the next kaiser if he proved to be incapable.
It's almost like you haven't even watched the series.
I think you sell the definition of "hero" a bit cheap like comparing it to a local police officer. If the hero can foresaw the threat in front of him then he ought to eliminate it before it occur. Villian don't have to be the one who make the first move. Villain can make mistake once but it won't happen the second time. This logic also mirror the Hero too if he doesn't take the Villain in consideration.
>The hero suffers to get his enjoyment though
What make you think that villains are evil by nature.Most of the time it's the process degeneration caused by the system or society; therefore, they suffer no less than the hero themselves.
in Fukumoto's case (at least his earlier ones), it's just really plain bad with frequent inconsistencies (like the tiny old-Akagi head, dont have pic), but Madhouse actually turns it into a solid art style
Why yes, catastrophically mutated and harmful genes are bad.
Also, the sky is blue and things fall down due to gravity.
The forest you're missing for the trees that the average, non-retarded person shouldn't rely on/blame their genes/heritage for their own successes/shortcomings. This is faggotry of the highest order.
>what makes you think villains are evil by nature
At the very least, they are unethical in order to expedite whatever plans they have. Their entire shtick is minimizing their own suffering and possibly maximizing the suffering of those that would get in their way
Most "Modern" supervillains don't look like fire breathing monsters. They look like skinny edgy faggots that occasionally dress up and fire death lasers. Unless you want to genocide all edgy highschoolers off of the earth, you have to wait for as move to be made. And if they are making a move, they probably already have plans to counter resistance.
What I'm trying to say is that the hero is a separate entity from a villain. They do not rely on the villain to exist, even in the modern age. There are still great feats performed and to be performed and to strive to perform, and the journey to accomplish them is the path of heroism. To aid others is but one way heroes are born, but it is not the only way; to put an end to the villain's scheme is another yet both are acceptable forms of heroism. Just because you have the power to stop a bad guy doesn't mean that should be the limit to what good one can do in service to others or even toward oneself.
Well in that case a hero is a slave to society. No matter what, a hero's job is to serve others. Even the more self aggrandizing heroes benefit others more than themselves. Villains have no shackles to any entity or ideology other than their own.
I hope you realize that in Humanity's 200,000 year history, it's only been 10,000 years since Agriculture, Permanent Settlement, all the things we would describe as civilization, were invented. And very rarely were those technologies entirely independently invented by societies. What typically occured was that the technologies and cultural achievements of one Society spread to other Societies. An example of this would be the fact that all of Europe's most widely used Alphabets are derived from the Phonecien Alphabet, one originating from non-White Middle-Eastern Phonecia.
If genes were truly the end all of intelligence technological success, and Whites were inherently more intelligent that other races, then you would have expected White societies to have independently come up with the technological and cultural achievements originating from non-White Societies, and to have done so without the tens of thousands of years spent living as hunter-gatherers after Humans first colonized Europe.
But of course the boundaries of races are vague, so you could change them to fit the definition that suits yourself.
>but instead they continue to live in mud huts even to our real life modern day.
The ones that do tended to have been born to poor illiterate parents and lacked the opportunity to receive education.
I don't think I have to remind you when I say that the Blacks that have had a middle-class upbringing and early education do as well as their white-middle class counterparts. To deny the fact that there exist a significant amount of Black people in every educated profession would be disingenuous.
Heroes are not necessarily bound by the concept of nationality or society, yet most are simply due to the fact that they were born as members of society. As I have said before, a hero's motives may be entirely selfish, but so long as the actions are great and leave an impression on others, then they are a hero.
Assuming most villains are or were human, they were at one point members of society as well. They are as much shackled by society as heroes, as they oppose society while heroes work with society. If they were not bound by society, they would be entirely isolated from it and would have little to do with it, and few villains do that. Sure there are those that wish to do the planet itself harm, but ultimately, the villain wishes to do harm to the society that has wronged them in some way, shape or form. The villain must actively go out of his way to do harm upon others or other things because that is the nature of the antagonist, which villains usually serve as. A hero's actions may bring harm to society through action or inaction, but heroism is not dependent on a hero protecting society to begin with. A villain is, however.
Because honestly my time is worthless and since its worthless it makes perfect sense to not be paid.
Besides after all the shit I've seen here I could give back in some manner.
I miss moot though so I may not be willing to apply if he's not the owner. Only time will tell though.
A soft touch is fine too, anon. An ounce is prevention is worth a pound in cure, as they say.

Truth, as they say, is stranger than fiction. An actual Saw scenario occurred in real life once. A dude had a bomb attached to him and he was forced to rob a bank.
A husband and wife duo kidnapped girls and locked them up in their trailers and made them their sex slaves
The tapes were actually instructions that new victims were supposed to be familiar with

There was this line from Alicia that I even considered in making a poster out of it. It was something like:
>I'll never tell people "Don't go there", instead, I'll tell them "Come here, come here".
If I play ,Split the Watermelon” blindfolded with President Aria, I
will not shout “Not that way, not that way”. Rather, I will continue to
shout “This way, this way.” If I am always shouting “Not that way”,
President Aria will be afraid to make a mistake. And eventually, I
think he would not be able to make a move. That’s my way of doing
I even have this in my Aria folder
Kaiji is the definition of moe.
That girl can go fuck herself. The opposite is also true.
After you have studied a discipline, you will masturbate over how it works, regardless of the fact there is no real improvement.
Here is the thing, it doesn't sound awkward in English.

This hit really close to home anon.
It's over six miles, and the average person probably can't manage 1 without slowing to a walk at some point. Coming from a background with only light exercise to six straight miles would take weeks of training.
Maybe, maybe not. I'm a little obsessed with them because of how crushingly present reality is all the time.
Also I have a liberal arts degree and concern myself highly with stories and values and religion.
How we create meaning and order and civilization in an insensate world. The apes that thought of something beyond being hungry and hitting an animal over the head with a stick. Those are the ones that are our ancestors. Because they dreamed and imagined.
